Adult Agendas in Publishing South African Folktales for Children.
Jenkins, Elwyn
Children's Literature in Education, v33 n4 p269-84 Dec 2002
Considers how translations of indigenous folktales form a large proportion of South African children's books. Notes that at first those who published them were influenced by Social Darwinism, and later the folktales played a role in promoting the ideology of apartheid, but they were mainly the product of white paternalism. Notes that the folktales are now valued for sharing with all South African children indigenous culture which has vanished. (SG)
